I'll read this. I want to test what's possible and/or impossible
regarding to MIDI and audio productions using FreeBSD.

I'll use 4k.

Until now I haven't done anything. It's still free.

On Linux I only use /. So I don't have to think about how much space
what directory might need and I never run into issues, when the file
system hierarchy does change. Off cause I've got special partitions for
audio productions mounted with noatime and a own partition for emails,
but anything else, including /home is inside /.

On Linux I can backup partition-wise too, but it's also possible to
backup directory-wise ;).

Btw. I never sync backups, I always keep several backups of the system,
since setting up a hard real-time jitter free DAW is a special task for
modern computers. In the 80s hard real-time really was hard real-time
(C64, Atari ST), nowadays it is hard work to get something similar.

Thank you.
